What a wonderful find! Joe E., Zsazu Pitts and Buster Keaton! It's a feel-good story. It's amusing, then becomes slap-stick at the end for just a minute. I am sure I will share this one and watch it again myself.

This is really sweet.. Though the picture repeats in the middle-ish, it still plays through the whole movie. A great find.
